Homemade Ricotta Cheese Recipe



8 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp kosher salt
3 TBS white vinegar


Line a sieve with cheesecloth or a damp paper towel and place over a bowl.

In a large, heavy pot over moderate heat, bring the milk, cream and salt to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Add the vinegar, reduce the heat to low and continue stirring until curds form, about 3 minutes.

Pour the mixture into the lined sieve and let drain, about 10 minutes. Remove the ricotta from the sieve to a medium bowl, discarding the liquid.

Feel free to toss in some fresh herbs here, oregano or thyme would be delicious. You could also drizzle some lemon-infused olive oil on top. Enjoy.
